Cornmeal Apple Griddle Cakes

This New England-inspired dish is a blend of kid friendly flavors. Apples, corn meal, and yogurt make these griddle cakes moist and flavorful. If you’re overwhelmed by the morning rush and want to take these to go but don’t want maple syrup sticky door handles, infuse them with maple flavor by replacing the brown sugar with maple sugar.
